Athens and Sparta were both political “beasts” of Greece and basically the two powers of ancient Greece. However if we look in depth we may see that political stability was often favored by the Athenians due to their “better quasi-democracy.” First of all, a major concern for the attributes of democracy would be the military. Children at the age of seven were taken away from parents to be trained in a military camp and were in the military until the age 30 where a temporary restriction of strictness was implied, until one was retired at 60. This does not give the mother, father or son any say in what the futures of all three would be. Democracy is power to the people and the majority of the peoples vote would contend to the decisions being made. However this does not seem to be happening in Sparta. In Athens a choice was given to all male children. Even when Tyrants were present in ruling, a choice was given to the people about decisions affecting their and their familial lives.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
